Gunmen suspected to be militants on Saturday night stormed Ishawo in Ikorodu, Lagos and shot one soldier and four policemen to death.
The militants were said to have stormed Woodland Estate where they ambushed personnel of operation Awatse in a fierce gun battle.
The gunmen, who took the operatives by surprise, allegedly fled into neighbouring creeks after the attack.
Spokesman for the Lagos Police Command, Olarinde Famous-Cole is yet to make any official comment.
Meanwhile, a visit by stv’s Correspondent Kayode Ladeinde reveals that relative calm has returned to the community, as at Sunday afternoon.
But few residents, who spoke, expressed fears, calling on the security agents to spare innocent people in their anticipated reprisal attack.
